No sounds had been heard the torpedo room the "S-4, which six men have been impris- oned since Saturday at that hour. The oscillator of the mine sweeper Falcon, flagship of tho salvage fleet, sent messages to the. S-4 at 15 minute intervals all night. When work was resumed today after a five hour suspension the air compressor of the Falcon had been forcing air into the torpedo room of the S-4 for more than 10 hours. Expert Has Hope Simon Lake, an expert in sub- marine construction sent a-radio message to the Falcon from his home at Bridgeport, Conn., during the night, stating that there should have been enough air in the torpe- do room of the S-4 to last one man 700 hours. He computed that there should have been sufficient to keep six men alive 116 -2-3 hours. The men might lit unconscious for many hours before they died, the message said.

Gifford, of .Cotnit, Mr. Gifford said today. "They wouldn't tell the newspaper men that the sub- marine was lost. They gave out wrong stories, and the boys had to resort to speculat- ing in many cases. The rope attached to the submarine never should have become detached or broke, causing yesterday's delay. They could have worked all day yester- day. They could have worked the day before, ward on the starboard side to in- spect the damage there and to see how the keel was resting. Wickwire was warned to avoid the diving rudders of the submar- ine which are opened because she was submerged when struck by the coastguard destroyer Paulding on Saturday. He also was told to give the hole in her hull on the starboard side forward .'of the con- ning tower a wide berth. A second diver was to go down when Wickwire had carried out his assignment. He was carry out the same orders on the port side of the vessel. Commander Ellsborg, who made several trips down to the submarine S-51 when he had charge of the salvaging of that vessel off Block Island two years planned to put on a div- er's suit later fn the day and make a personal inspection of the S-4. Rear Admiral Frank H. Brum- by, in charge of salvage operations of the sunken submarine, admitted at 11 o'clock today that there was no longer hope that life existed on board the submarine.
